What brant/type pads and rotors you guys recommend for replacement( 16' forester with $30k miles).
My wife drives this car, mostly city.
Rear rotors have much more wear then front, possibly will replace both or just rear rotors.
TIA

I know many will reply with high performance slotted/drilled/ordained-by-the-Gods options, but if you just want good performance and long life, I've had these AutoZone DuraLast Gold rotors and DuraLast Gold Ceramic pads on the front of my wife's 2013 Kia Soul for 2 years and 35K miles. We drive in a lot of hills and mountains around here in West Virginia, so they get a pretty good workout. There is still no vibration or shimmy, and at last week's annual inspection, the tech told me the fronts still look like new.

I installed Powerstop plain rotors and pads on my Forester. They came as a package from Rock Auto. Have them on the car for about a month. No noise or problems at all. If they last, I would buy them again.

I'm with @KLEMMER on this one. Just go with OEM. I'm looking at new rotors on my next pad change in a few months and I'll get them from my local Subaru dealer. Guaranteed fit and function and it includes all the hardware.

Just go OEM. There are plenty of sites offering less than retail and the pads have all the clips and shims and lube needed.
THis.

However, I've got about 60k miles out of my 2010 Forester pads and brakes, 2015 is still good at a bit over 50k miles. :)

But that’s a Kia. We are talking about for a real car. :surprise: just teasing.

Where can I get my rotors resurfaced? Can rotors still be resurfaced these days?
